  1. Watched a video of the final boss of the new Gears of War and couldn't help noticing how the music was completely drowned out by sounds and dialogue, on top of being pretty generic orchestral composition.  When music is almost unnoticeable I do wonder what the point of having it there is in the first place.  Compare to, say, Transformers Devastation, where the sound effects are satisfying but the music is super hype and always able to be heard over the action, that kind of sound design just gets me so much more invested.

      AAA Games: "We spent thousands on this full orchestra so you can't hear it."

      It's an issue I wish would stop being so prevalent.  Movies do that a lot too.  There's a great video about it by Every Frame a Painting:

      Yeah, i've been playing gears 2 lately myself and if you asked me what half the songs in that game sound like i'd be at a loss because I heard almost non of it over all the gunfire and dialogue.

      People think orchestral music is the best kind of music because classic music I think.

      Honestly, these sub par orchestral drones are mostly pretty awful. It's annoying that contemporary classic music is just mostly droning generic orchestral crap.

      It really is a shame, I don't understand why composers for films and games aren't given more freedom.  Having them try to copy a different style or play it super safe doesn't bring about interesting music.  It's like they're scared to let musicians make memorable themes.  Imagine Star Wars without all of its easily hummable tunes, or Zelda without its theme tune, or Metal Gear Rising's final boss without its song.  Music shouldn't be treated as a less important piece of the artwork.
